LAHORE: The construction work on the Cavalry underpass in Lahore has reached its completion, and the signal-free passageway has been accessible to the Lahoris since November 26, 2023.
The transformation of one of Lahore’s busiest roads has undergone a significant overhaul with the construction of new Cavalry underpass.
This development has notably eased travel for the residents of Lahore, particularly those commuting to Defence Housing Authority (DHA) Lahore and individuals travelling from DHA to Kalma Chowk or Gulberg via Cavalry Ground.
Post-completion, the Cavalry road exhibits a more aesthetically pleasing and hassle-free environment for travel, having been rendered signal-free.

This means that citizens no longer need to wait for signals. Those heading to Khalid Masjid can easily turn left, while those bound for MM Alam can navigate through the newly constructed Cavalry underpass.
The revamped Cavalry Ground in Lahore has garnered appreciation on various social media platforms for its modern and refreshed appearance.
Caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi inaugurated the underpass. Notably, the Cavalry underpass project was completed within a span of two-and-a-half months.
Despite the enhanced look and improved travel experience for citizens, residents of DHA and nearby areas faced difficulties during the construction phase.
However, now that the construction is complete, the Cavalry underpass is open for public use.
The 540-metre-long underpass, featuring dual lanes, serves as a signal-free corridor extending from Centre Point, Gulberg, up to Ghora Chowk, Defence Mor.
Reports indicate that approximately 180,000 cars are expected to pass through the Cavalry Ground’s new underpass on a daily basis.
